COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We brew our beer in New York, about halfway between the hop fields of the Pacific Northwest and the hop fields of Kent, England. So we use earthy English hops to build the foundation and bright citrusy American hops to bring the noise in the rambunctious IPA we call BLAST! British Maris Otter and German Pilsner malts lends solidity, balance and bready flavors to brace up a beer that’s beautifully hoppy, strangely quaffable and oddly compelling. Minerally hop bitterness is followed by a shock wave of flavor and aroma. You won’t even know what hit you.

Malts: Scottish Floor-malted Maris Otter, German Pilsner Malt

Hops: Willamette, Magnum, Cascade, Fuggle, Aurora, Zythos, Bravo, Simcoe, Sorachi Ace, Amarillo, Experiment 6300

gramity (1506) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 14, 2013
Pale golden color. Aroma is fantastic, with distinct earthy, citrus, flowery aroma hops dominating. Slight malty sweetness. Nice balance of bitterness and sweetness. Good head and nice lacing in the glass. Bold yet traditional over-the-top American IPA.

zgaier (1502) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JAN 27, 2012
Pours orange with a white head and hoppy aroma. Taste is very hoppy, sweet with taste of pine and grass with a nice bitter, malty finish. Flavorful, enjoyable double IPA from Brooklyn.

ladnewton (1500) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2012
Bottle at Craft Beer Co, London on 21st July 2012. Hazy amber with thin but lasting white head. Exquisitely fruity, spicy and cheesy aroma. Intense citric lemon and grapefruit in-mouth, with touches of smokiness. Developing bitter and citric finish on a zingy mouthfeel.

An excellent IPA. Big beer. BIg Flavor. This is a new powerhouse in Brooklyn’s stable to hang right next to their chocolate stout

Scrapersnbeer (1492) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 28, 2014
Heavy grapefruit aroma, resinous with bready undertones. Hazy orange appearance. Medium bitterness, ’soft’ I would say, with a long sweet finish. Smooth and drinkable. Seems like the English version of a double India, or at least correlates to the style relative to traditional English IPAs against American ones.

kryon (1488) - SWEDEN - APR 25, 2013
Pours clear amber with low white head Fully freshly hopped aromas citrusy fruits. Taste is loaded with fresh hoppyness. I wonder how this will taste after 2 months in a bottle? However, very very good from Brooklyn! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ja, jag hade verkligen inga problem med denna. Kraftig i aromen, väldigt fruktig. Framhäver beskan och humlen tydligt, tjock fyllig kropp.
